President's Message: Jim Schultz
April 2015 Runabouts to Rockets

April has arrived and I hope everyone has survived the brutal winter in the northern and eastern parts of our country. As I write this month’s narrative, it is still February and here in Arizona we have not had it so bad—so far. I’m knocking wood.

After my very interesting ride home in my ’53 Super 88 Holiday Coupe last month from the Pavilions in Scottsdale I did rebuild the Rochester 4GC with another kit from Fusick’s and had the same success. It now runs like a top after cleaning out a lot of sediment that plugged up the accelerator circuit. I drove it to Oldsmobile Night at the Pavilions and back—240 miles round trip—the following Saturday with no difficulties.

For those online, our Facebook page has transitioned to a group. This allows us to post multiple pictures. Paul Hartlieb got the job done and many have posted numerous pictures already. You are in for a treat with all the recent postings. Click on the member request and one of us will approve you. Then feel free to post pictures of Oldsmobile related topics. You never know—you might get asked to submit to our award winning Runabouts to Rockets.

Editor’s Note: You do not have to wait for a request to send in your photos and stories! Send them in—Now!

Our National Meet in East Peoria, Illinois is just a couple of months away. With both national Olds Clubs meets only a week apart and not that far apart geographically, I’m planning to attend both. Those in the parts business might want to consider doing both meets as I mentioned last month. Please plan to attend what promises to be a great meet. Phil Fischer has some fun things scheduled for us. Get your entries in as soon as you can so we can plan accordingly.
